Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery with Personal Plastic Surgery

Often referred to as “windows to the soul”, we use our eyes to express emotion, communicate, and connect with others. As we age, signs of wear and tear such as puffiness, drooping, sagging skin, and fine lines often distract from the beauty and power of our eyes. If you want to reframe your most important feature to present a youthful and bright-eyed appearance, Dr. Sanjay Lalla and Personal Plastic Surgery’s skilled team can help with a personalized eyelid surgery procedure.

As the No.1 board-certified plastic surgeon in northern New Jersey, Dr. Lalla has expertise in performing a variety of advanced eyelid surgery techniques with a warm and compassionate approach. If you feel bothered by the effects of aging, have vision difficulties, or just want to revive your eyes’ sparkle, it is the right time for you to consider eyelid surgery with Dr. Sanjay Lalla.

What is Eyelid Surgery?

According to the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, the traditional eyelid procedure, or blepharoplasty, is the second most common aesthetic procedure performed on men and women. Eyelid surgery is an effective way to restore a youthful look to your eyes.  

This procedure removes pockets of fat, loose skin, and muscle from areas around the upper eyelid, the lower eyelid, or both. While not required, many patients combine other procedures, like chemical peels or BOTOX®, with a blepharoplasty to eliminate crow’s feet and sagging eyebrows.

Eyelid Surgery Overview

Dr. Lalla will hold an initial consultation to assess your needs and concerns. From there, our experienced team will develop a treatment plan and explain the details of your procedure. Dr. Lalla will recommend which procedure and techniques will give you optimal results.  

The length of your cosmetic eyelid surgery will depend on which eyelid procedure you have selected to meet your goals. Both upper and lower eyelid surgery, for instance, will last 45 minutes to a few hours to complete. Moreover, eyelid surgeries require local anesthesia with intravenous sedation.

Dr. Sanjay Lalla is the BEST NJ Plastic Surgeon! He was referred to me by a previous patient who couldn’t say enough good things about his work. Not only was Dr. Lalla a delight, but I also have never come across a more professional, yet kind and caring staff! From the first person to answer the phone to the Nurse Practitioner, Gina and of course Dr. Lalla! When you are making permanent changes to your body you need to be really comfortable with that person, he did just that and more! Plus all the little things you don’t think about, they do and make everything about your procedure so easy and comfortable! Thank you again, Dr. Lalla and staff, I feel like a new and improved woman!


Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper eyelid surgery trims away excess skin that gives you a tired “droopy eyelid” appearance or impairs your vision. Dr. Lalla will gently lift the remaining skin and tighten it to provide a smoother appearance. Scarring from the eyelid treatment should be virtually invisible as the incisions are made in the natural crease of the upper eyelid.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Lower eyelid surgery removes bags and fat deposits underneath the eyes. First, incisions are made under the lower eyelashes. Next, your plastic surgeon will remove excess fat, muscle, and skin, thereby achieving a firmer, more youthful-looking set of eyes.

Stitches get removed after three or four days, and most people return to work in ten days. Patients must not wear contacts for two weeks after the surgery. Dr. Lalla may also prescribe eye drops and cool compresses to alleviate any discomfort. With our compassionate team, you can feel confident you will receive excellent care throughout the entire process!
